Every time I dine here, I feel like I am in Italy. The food is consistently spectacular, the staff makes you feel part of the family and the setting is ideal to enjoy talking with your dinner companions. La Campania is unquestionably the best Italian restaurant in the Boston suburbs and one of the best in the entire greater Boston... More

This restaurant has a difficult and very eclectic menu which can be an adventure if the end result is satisfying. It is grossly overcharging for food that is not outstanding. $42 for a pork chop?!?!

I confess that I was not expecting much. I thought that we were going to a neighborhood family Mexican restaurant for a family birthday. Instead I was introduced to this gem. Not pretentious but absolutely world class. Cannot say enough good things about it.

What a find! We decided to try la Campania on Saturday night, and we were more than pleased with our choice for "date night" dinner. It's rustic and elegant and friendly and absolutely delicious! It's more expensive than a bar and grill, but not outrageously priced. I started the evening with an Italian version of a Kir royale: prosecco with... More

My husband and I travel the world and we are big foodies . We moved to the Boston area 6 months ago and have been here 11 times so far. Everything is always amazing. The wine list is on point and well rounded. If you're traveling alone for work as a weekday person and wand to have a friendly dinner... More

This is a special occasion restaurant based on the price but it is well worth it. The food is spectacular; the service wonderful but non-obtrusive.

This wonderful Italian restaurant is nestled on Main Street in Waltham near the Watertown line. Don't be fooled by the plain facade of the building. Inside you will find a cozy atmosphere which is especially busy on weekend nights; read that as you better have a reservation or forget about eating before 9 pm. We always sit in the bar... More

Great food and convenient setting has made this place a favorite for special occasions. Interior feels like some of the restaurants we want to in Rome. Always happy to go back

This was my first time at La Campania. I was on a first date so I wanted a fairly quiet place with great food and wine and La Campania did not disappoint. We shared an Osso Buco and a fish dish and both were exquisite. The wine list is topnotch and our waiter was very helpful in selecting the right... More

This restaurant is a cute place with a great ambiance. We were there for a business meeting however it would be a very nice date place as well. Service was outstanding - attentive but not over bearing. Everyone's meal was fantastic.The dover sole was flaky and melted in your mouth. Pumpkin ravioli was hand-made and flavored nicely. There wasn't anything... More
